"A TRIBUTE TO THE POWER OF STORYTELLING ON A HUMAN SCALE. The polar opposite of a disaster, it’s a triumph of modest means."

- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

"AS EXHILARATING AS ANY EPIC AMERICAN THRILLER, and better than most. The Wave has an unerring plausibility and a nerve-jangling pace that keeps you locked in the tensest state of high anxiety you will experience in any other movie this year."

- Rex Reed, NY Observer

"The 85 foot wave is a sight to behold, but not as riveting as the before and after."

- Michael Nordine, Village Voice

"EXCITING. Disaster filmmaking the way it ought to be done."

- Kenneth Turan, LA Times

"A SURGING BLAST OF FUN."

- Dennis Dermody, Paper

"EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN ITS HOLLYWOOD ANCESTORS. The filmmakers know how to keep the stakes high and the screws tightened."

- David Fear, Rolling Stone

"If you think foreign films can’t compete with Hollywood when it comes to delivering popcorn entertainment, PREPARE TO BE CARRIED AWAY BY THE WAVE."

- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"The execution of the tsunami itself is AWE-INSPIRING."

- Katie Walsh, Chicago Tribune

"AN IMPRESSIVE, THUNDEROUS NERVE-WRACKER."

- Peter Debruge, Variety

"A THRILLING RIDE. Spectacular scenery of fjords and craggy, snow-capped peaks proves as beautiful to look at as it is deadly."

- Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

"THE WAVE BARRELS THROUGH WITH THE IMPACT OF A TSUNAMI. Gripping and naturalistic."

- Marjorie Baumgarten, The Austin Chronicle

"The human scale of the story makes the movie more tragic and also more chilling."

- Stephanie Merry, Washington Post

"THE MOVIE WORKS."

- Anthony Lane, New Yorker

"PUTS HOLLYWOOD DISASTER MOVIES TO SHAME. A stellar work that will hopefully teach Hollywood a thing or two."

- Perri Nemiroff, Collider

"THE WAVE expresses the disaster movie genre’s visceral power as few films have in recent memory."

- Sam Woolf, We Got This Covered

"It takes what American disaster movies do right (impressive and intimidating visuals) and ditches what they mess up."

- Matt Singer, Screen Crush

"A cut above the rest."

- Trace Thurman, Bloody Disgusting

"Exciting. Disaster filmmaking the way it ought to be done."

- THE VILLAGE VOICE
